End of the winter training camp

6th January = rest day (I think)

7th January:

I felt tired this day, but the only time to train was first thing in the morning (without disrupting more important things that you do when on holiday). I don’t like to do interval sessions straight out of bed, especially when feeling fatigued, but it is better than not doing them at all. As I didn’t feel good I made the conscious decision to rate up (ie row at a higher stroke rate) and just get the reps done. Not enjoyable, but it did the job of getting through the session at a respectable pace.

5 x 750m / 3:30 rest:
2:26.0 / 1:37.3 / 33
2:25.6 / 1:37.0 / 34
2:25.3 / 1:36.8 / 35
2:25.3 / 1:36.8 / 35
2:25,0 / 1:36.6 / 36

3750m = 12:07.2 / 1:36.9 / 34

8th January:

Another day with very little free time, and only first thing in the morning to get a session in. With only 20mins spare I opted for a 500m warm up then a 5k with the first 3k @ 1:48.0 then a negative split final 2k. Again, better than nothing.

5k = 17:48.0 / 1:46.8 / 27

9th January:

Finally a 30mins this morning before now flying back to London this evening.

30mins = 8003m / 1:52.4 / 24

Overall only 3 days out of 2 weeks away where I haven’t trained, and so although the overall quality hasn’t been very high, I am certain that I am returning home at least in the same place fitness wise as when I left.
